J.J. Abrams TED Talk

Watch J.J. Abrams Talk His "Mind-Blowing" Tech Inspiration

J.J. Abrams is top of mind right now for geeks, as it was revealed Thursday he was in final talks to direct Star Wars Episode VII. While everyone seemed to have an opinion on the news, it reminded us of the sci-fi credentials already on his résumé. There are plenty of examples from his career — from bringing Star Trek back to the big screen to the story of a small town under alien attack in Super 8 — to ease a geek's mind concerning this uneasy Tatooine transition.

But where does the man who never seems to creatively rest get all this inspiration? Watch J.J. talk about his adoration of the design of Apple computers and even show off some Star Wars trivia in his TED Talk from 2007.
